I had a few verses of the quran in my top jacket pocket, which I kept with me while I was doing some memorisation of the quran on the move. i.e. because I didn't want to carry the full quran with me on the train, I bought a small booklet which contained some short verses from the local islamic shop.

I accidently left that booklet in my jacket and washed the jacket. Now ihave a mash of paper, where about 10% of the text is readable and the rest is unreadable.

So my question is, how would I dispose of bearly readable quranic text like this?

Hanafi Sunni view prefered.

I've seen the 2 answers in this question: What does Qur'an or Hadith says regarding the correct methods of disposing the Qur'an?

But the first answer doesn't use any authentic sources, and I find the second answer unclear. Is the second answer saying that it should be buried or not, or should it be burned or not, or both or any?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.
